I had lost my cooking mo-jo I had been in the kitchen doing some recipe testing and failing miserably ! The family were happy enough but I wasn’t ! And then I made this beauty a few weeks ago . I had posted a shot of it on my facebook page HERE and it definitely seemed to be a winner for those interested in the recioe

I was a little delayed in getting the recipe written up as my dear dad had a nasty fall and ended up in the ICU and then having a pacemaker installed ! So recipe writing was put on hold !

I’ve made another couple of these fantastic loaves/cakes and thought I really must write it up and share as its so delicious and such a healthy alternative to the usual 🙂

Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
